X-Men fans can breathe a sigh of relief – Halle Berry will reprise her role as Storm in the upcoming film X-Men: Days Of Future Past.
Director Bryan Singer tweeted the announcement earlier today, confirming news everyone pretty much expected.

Berry joins cast members from the original-trilogy Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page and Shawn Ashmore. They will appear alongside First Class stars Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Nicholas Hoult, as well as new additions Peter Dinklage and Omar Sy.
And in case you’re keeping score, two other stars from the original Famke Janssen (Jean Grey) and James Marsden (Cyclops) are still sitting on the sidelines.
Days of Future Past is adapted from a 1981 comic written by Chris Claremont that involved time travel. Still, though, gotta wonder how they’re going to give ample screen time to all those big names.
In an interview with CNN, Berry said she was happy to be back.
“I loved her and the people love Storm … so I’m happy to come back,” she said.
Are you happy Storm is back? Do you think there are too many stars in the new film? Let us know in the comments.
